The Farewell Tour Continues.

This past week, I got to spend time with some very awesome people. The first half was spent with the hubs' cousins. That I was meeting them for the first time was just icing. I love them! They're adorable!
These pics were taken at Downtown Disney Marketplace. Ethan (above in the red) was in heaven! I loved watching his eyes light up as he took picture after picture next to all the different statues. He's a sweetheart. He even made this adorable video for the hubs.
I'm sad I couldn't spend more time with them, but I had to fly up to North Carolina to visit one of my lovely friends and her little family. And meet this new love of mine...
GAH!! I love her. She's my friend's insanely cute baby girl. I could not stop taking pictures of her. I did find some time to take other pictures, but not much. ;-) Here are some of my faves:
It was definitely a trip that went by way too quickly. It was so hard saying farewell to these wonderful faces! The move hadn't fully hit me until now. It's starting... Sigh.
Someone was mad at me when I got home... but I know he was relieved. But his relief is short-lived. I leave again in three weeks—I get to visit my hubs soon!

Still a tough day for me. I miss him dearly. But I have to keep remembering that even though he's not here physically, he's ALWAYS here in spirit. As long as I keep the memories that I have of him close to my heart. I hope I can be half the parent to my children as he was with my brothers and I.
I miss you, dad.

The hubs is BA.

Just thought I'd throw that out there. He finally went to get his HI driver's license yesterday. Let's just say that he will always be formal, but ready to party.

A Big Fat Sanibel Wedding

This weekend we celebrated the marriage of this big guy on the left to this lovely lady on the right. Said big guy is my (not-so) little brother. Don't they make a great couple?

We arrived in Sanibel the day before the wedding and the forecast for the next day was 50% chance of rain. (eek!) I firmly believe that dad was looking out and talked to the Man above because not a cloud was in the sky the next day. We were blessed with a wonderful sunset wedding.
The bride's talented cousin, Lance, was kind enough to take pictures for the day. He did such a great job from what I've seen and I can't wait to see the rest! Check him out here.



We are all so excited to welcome a great new addition to our family. We feel so blessed to have her! The only thing that could've made the day that much sweeter was if dad and the hubs were there to share with us. I know they were both there in spirit.
Welcome to our crazy, loud, loveably awesome family!

As in I got 10 inches of my hair chopped off today! Crazy, huh?! I went in to the salon today just looking for a break from what my stylist called "mermaid long" hair. Not that I didn't love my long hair... it's just so cumbersome and thick for muggy, humid Florida. And it had gotten to the point where I couldn't do much to it except put it in a ponytail or bun every day. So I went in today with every intention of just getting a cute, edgy shoulder length cut. I got the cute. I got the edgy. But it's definitely not shoulder length!
My stylist took a look at my hair before the cut and said, "I wonder if you can donate your hair?" I told her to check and she said that the minimum donation of 10 inches was just an inch or so more than where I asked her to cut. Now, I'm not the type of girl to be overly concerned about my haircut... it's just hair. I am one of the fortunate ones whose hair grows like a weed--super fast! So I told her to go for it! And I'm so happy with the result! I'm doing a good deed AND I get to look cute. Bonus! I sent hubs a pic and he rikey, too!
PS: Miles was so excited about my haircut, he just couldn't stand it! And yes, I had to get him that onesie! Probably the one and only time he'll be able to fit in it, but at least I got proof! =D

Beer me!

Print deadlines. Emails out the wazoo. Information overload. Crazy stress. It's been one of those days.

Can you tell...

...that I'm going through hubby withdrawals?
This was taken during our portrait session with our awesome friend, Jana Morgan. The heart bunting overlays are from vol.25 aka Digital Eye Candy from her "Be Mine" overlay set. This was the spot where the hubs proposed to me. It's a low key spot under one of the bridge walkways at Disney's Boardwalk, which was also where we had our first date. Cute, huh? Go check these lovely ladies out. I pormise you won't be disappointed!
